Park Beyond 2.4.0 Patch Notes

Note from the Dev team

We are starting 2024 with a fitting Patch 2.4.0! This patch comes with a long list of bug fixes, improvements and a small content addition on all platforms. With this patch, communication around ride connectivity has been improved, UI communication for rides not being reachable by visitors has been improved and visitors will now give you a clear visual indication when they are stuck in your park with no way to reach their goal. Look for the waving arms! On the staff side, staff members who are out of energy and not able to reach a Staff Lounge to rest can now also be distinguished easier in your park.

We are happy to also include important performance improvements to the PC version of Park Beyond, that will allow you to enjoy your huge parks with thousands of visitors even more!


We thank you for your ongoing support and valuable feedback and look forward to 2024 with you!
